This book focuses on Barrett's Esophagus (BE), a clinical condition that must be evaluated in all patients affected by chronic GERD, and with an important link to esophageal cancer. Divided into four sections (morphological background, epidemiology and natural history, diagnosis, and treatments), this handy volume provides the latest indications regarding endoscopic approaches (first level and advanced endoscopy), pathological studies (pathology and molecular biology), and state-of-the-art therapeutic options (medical, endoscopic, and surgical) for BE. As such, it offers a valuable reference guide for all professionals involved in the management of BE (gastroenterologists, endoscopists, pathologists and surgeons), offering them a comprehensive overview and deeper understanding of this seemingly superficial disease.

  • Endoscopic Follow-up of Digestive Anastomosis

    Giuseppe Galloro

    Owing to the alterations in visceral anatomy, many endoscopists, and especially trainees, experience difficulties when performing endoscopic surveys or procedures in patients who have previously undergone surgery to the digestive tract. In this ri...

"This is a nice book. It is unique in its emphasis on the variety of topics related to Barrett's esophagus, but it is a very focused book, which will lack the global appeal of a more comprehensive one. However, for practitioners who treat patients with GERD and Barrett's, this will be a nice adjunct to their practice." (Peter Nau, Doody's Book Reviews, April 12, 2019)

Övrig information

After completing his medical school degree, Professor Giuseppe Galloro earned his post-graduate specialization in General Surgery, both with honors. Following his post-graduate training as a junior doctor at the General Surgery Department of the University of Naples Federico II - School of Medicine, he was appointed as assistant and then resident fellow at the same department. He later became a consultant at the Digestive Surgical Endoscopy Unit and Researcher in General Surgery. He was nominated as an Assistant Professor (2004) and Associated Professor (2015) of General Surgery at the University of Naples Federico II - School of Medicine, as well as head of the Diagnostic and Therapeutic Endoscopy of Non Neoplastic Diseases of the Digestive System, Biliary Tract and Pancreas Section at the same hospital. He currently teaches several graduate and post-graduate courses (on general surgery, digestive diseases, and digestive endoscopy). His main clinical and research practice is on new techniques and methodologies in diagnostic and operative endoscopy of pre neoplastic diseases and early digestive cancers; endoscopic management of obesity; computing applications and new materials applied to endoscopy. He has authored various volumes of congress proceedings, monographs and journal articles, and has been an invited speaker at over three hundred national and international congresses.
